Sorry to say, Snowy not a real bright star in the heavens! He get so mad when he see dude in cave, he pull down part of cave wall and knock self out cold!! Make real easy for guy to tie up and take back to LA on sleek Constellation!

Big 'frigerator seem like very smart way to drag Snowy around until he learn how to rock it back and forth!


This is great action, Snowy punch guard right in face! Notice how costume all bunched up there where tucked in?!

The cave is actually world famous Bronson Cavern (actually an abandoned rock quarry) still used by studios today for cave locations.
